About LEARN: Activities & Accomplishments
LEARN Members Partner to Deploy Lonestar 4 Supercomputer
The University of Texas at Austin, in association with the University of Texas System, Texas Tech University, Texas A&M University, the National Science Foundation and several technology partners, deployed the Lonestar 4 supercomputer, as a part of the advanced computing arsenal for the science community in the state of Texas and the nation. Researchers will use the LEARN network, and other advanced networks that are connected with LEARN, to share this strategically important computing resource.
Lonestar 4 is located at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at the University of Texas at Austin and it affirms the leadership position that Texas plays in the global supercomputing community. The system was designed for optimal performance across a wide spectrum of scientific applications. Lonestar 4 ranks among the most powerful academic supercomputers in the world. The system's capabilities include 302 teraflops of peak performance, 44.3 terabytes of total memory and 1.2 petabytes of raw disk. The supercomputing cluster will provide almost 200 million processor core hours to the national scientific community.
Supercomputers like Lonestar 4 are critical to research projects that produce important discoveries that advance our knowledge and often produce transformational impacts for our society. Under the leadership of TACC, in association with Texas A&M and Texas Tech, this important strategic resource is available to researchers in Texas and throughout the United States to support new research, education, and discovery.
